The University of Liverpool has, since 1881, worked for the advancement of learning and ennoblement of life. This remains our mission today and will give focus to all our efforts in the coming years as we strive to achieve our ambitions and aspirations, tackle the grand challenges of the age and make our vision a reality. We have laid down this explicit challenge of where we want to be in 10 years’ time, and now we must be just as clear on how we will get there.

We start from a position of strength. As a connected, global University with multiple physical and virtual campuses – Liverpool, London, Suzhou, Singapore and online – our worldwide influence and impact is unrivalled in higher education. Over the next decade we will build on our internationally recognised strengths in research and scholarship and increase collaborative and inter-disciplinary working. We will continue to develop a high-quality environment in which to educate well-rounded, enquiring global citizens who connect and engage – through their learning, research, civic engagement and inter-cultural understanding – with the world’s most pressing problems. We will integrate teaching and research to ensure that we derive the maximum benefit from our rich environment of intellectual enquiry and challenge.

The University values diversity; we are an inclusive institution, committed to the provision of opportunity for those with the capacity to benefit as individuals but also as members of a wider community dedicated to a sustainable and just society. We will be guided by strong ethical principles and ensure that our values are embedded in our plans and actions.

We will commit to a culture of continuous improvement and collaborative working, ensuring that we encourage and value the contributions of staff and students to decision-making, and foster good governance through a culture of openness and transparency. We respect difference, but will look for consistency and sharing of good practice to ensure that fairness and equality of opportunity inform our organisational structures and processes.

Our educational offer and world-leading research will be recognised regionally, nationally and internationally as distinctively collaborative. We place the utmost value on partnership working and we will continue to shape a robust network of education and industry alliances, forging productive relationships worldwide, building capacity and advancing knowledge.

Choose your university and course

Before you choose

  • Talk to a careers/guidance adviser.
  • Visit to get more information and compare the courses and universities that interest you. When you apply, you can select up to five choices.
  • Do a keyword search on UCAS – if there’s a specific course title or course combination you want to do, type it directly into the UCAS course finder engine.
  • Do your research carefully – check out university websites, as well as UCAS, so you get a real feel for the place.
  • Consider the course content and not just its title – English at one university is not the same as English at another university.
    Check the entry requirements – will you need specific subjects (including GCSEs) or work experience? Are you on track to achieve the grades you need?
  • Attend university open days – see our handy checklist for suggestions on things you could ask about. If you’re considering Anglia Ruskin, we’d love to see you at one of our undergraduate Open Days.
  • Get advice from friends, family and school staff – but don’t forget the ultimate choice is yours.
  • Try to get to a UCAS HE Fair where you can pick up prospectuses from lots of different universities and speak with their representatives.
  • Have you chosen courses with a range of entry requirements? Try to maximise your chances by making your ‘Insurance’ option a course with lower grade requirements than your ‘Firm’ choice.
  • Think about a range of universities with different entry requirements.
  • Above all you should be comfortable with your choices: it’s all about finding the ‘best fit’ for you.
